Trying to learn a new language? Not comfortable enough with English to constantly read it on your BlackBerry? Want to pull a prank on a friend? Then you might have reason to change the default language on your BlackBerry. Yet most BlackBerry devices come with only English pre-installed. So you’ll have to take a few steps in order to get that new language up and running. Don’t worry. It’ll only take a few minutes. First, if you don’t have the languages installed on your BlackBerry, you’ll have to check your BlackBerry Desktop software by connecting your Berry to it. Click on Application Loader once connected. There should be a list of languages to install. If not, you’ll have to download the latest OS from your carrier. To do this you’ll have to go to your own carrier’s BlackBerry site and download the OS. So, for instance, if you have a Verizon BlackBerry you’ll have to go to their website and find their BlackBerry downloads section. Once installed, you’ll go to Options, Language. There you can change not only the language, but the voice dialing language and the name display.
